Eighty domestic and international firms came together in designing Atlantis Sanya.

Atlantis Sanya's innovative design blends modern aesthetics and sea-inspired imagery with elements from Sanya's rich culture, giving the resort the enchanting look and feel. The resort features artwork by local Chinese artists and the furnishings are accented with Hainan province native hardwoods that exude a local but luxurious impression.
The myth of Atlantis truly comes alive at The Lost Chambers Aquarium, a twisting maze of underground passageways and tunnels that provide a fascinating insight into the ancient Atlantis civilisation, which has been hidden under the sea for thousands of years. The resort also boasts one of the largest open-air aquariums in the world, The Ambassador Lagoon, a unique marine habitat of over 13.5 million litres, where visitors will gaze at the heart of Atlantis. Guests can also get up close and personal with over 86,000 marine animals including sharks, rays and other distinctive marine life through diving experiences in the lagoon.
The gravity-defying waterslides at Aquaventure Waterpark promise fun for the entire family. This expansive 200,000 square meter waterpark is truly a one of a kind, the first in China to open everyday of the year. Hours of fun and excitement await as guests can experience adrenaline-pumping waterslides that catapult riders through shark filled lagoons, or take a tumultuous ride on the Rapids River. Younger children will love Splashers, a child-friendly water playground packed with under-the-sea themed thrills, featuring elaborate water games, slides and more.
With the arrival of 21 restaurants, lounges and cafes, Atlantis Sanya offers a vast selection of exquisite dining opportunities. From quick bites, casual dining, expansive buffets, specialty restaurants and celebrity chef dining, the resort is poised to take the spot of Hainan's number one dining destination.
